Chinese OEM Oppo set to join the Windows Phone 8 eco-system
According to WPDang sources, Chinese handset maker Oppo is set to build Windows Phone 8 hardware. Founded in 2004, Oppo is a relatively new player to the mobile phone industry with a history of different electronic products, including media players. WPDang reports that the Chinese manufacturer could begin releasing new Windows Phones in 2013. Being less internationally known than both Huawei and ZTE, Oppo certainly can produce aesthetically pleasing hardware.
Oppo has been competing with feature phones in China, but also have the Finder 3 Android smartphone featuring a dual-core 1.5Ghz CPU, 1GB RAM, 8MP camera (with 2M FF shooter) with a 4" display. Looking at the Finder 3, being just 65mm thick and priced at 2,500 CNY ($391), it would be interesting to see Apollo powering such high-end specifications. Throw 32GB into the mixture and we'd have a winning flagship.
What do you make of Oppo joining the ranks of Windows Phone OEMs?
